Understandable, have a nice day refers to a catchphrase found in a series of image macros in which one person asks for something, the other person denies it to them, and therefore, the initial person responds, "Understandable, have a nice day."


The first instance of "understandable, have a nice day" comes from a variation on the Whoppy Machine Broke meme. On February 26th, 2017, Twitter user @liltusk[8] posted a three-panel, deep fried image macro (shown below), in which former professional basketball player Shaquille O'Neal drives up to a drive thru window and says, "Hello, food?" The drive thru attendant responds, "Food broke." The final panel shows Shaq relaxing behind the wheel of his car with the text, "Understandable. Have a great day."
